Gallery: Christman HQ: The World’s First Double LEED Platinum Building

 
The original building was once The Mutual Building, built in 1928 and located in the shadow of Michigan’s Capitol. The landmark building is located in downtown Lansing and was constructed as the headquarters of Michigan Millers Mutual Insurance Company.

The Christman Company is a construction management and development firm that specializes in historic renovations, so it was only fitting that the firm chose a historic five-story building in the heart of downtown Lansing to locate their new headquarters. The company wanted to prove its commitment to healthy interiors and energy efficiency through the ultimate green renovation demonstration project.

The Christman Company worked with SmithGroup to renovate the old Mutual Building into the world’s first “Double Platinum” LEED certified building – the project was awarded certification for both its Core and Shell (CS) and Commercial Interiors (CI). The project has also garnered a number of prestigious awards since its building completion in 2008.
